Hospice Isle of Man will be doing its bit for the environment by helping people to recycle real Christmas trees.
Trees can be collected by the charity’s team by registering on www.charityxmastreecollection.com and by paying a minimum donation of £5 per tree.
The team will collect the trees from outside people’s homes on January 6, 7 and 8.
Only the trees that have been registered and left outside can be collected.
All the trees will be taken to Ballaneven in Peel for crushing and recycling as compost.
Hospice thanked Richard Kneen for his help with this at Ballaneven.
Sharon Connor, the new events manager for the hospice, has persuaded Newfield, a local e-gaming company, which is also where her son works, to help.
Staff from the company will be helping to collect the trees and then load the them into vans .
Newfield director Mr Mark Reynolds said: ‘We are delighted that our staff have chosen to volunteer for this event.
‘Hospice Isle of Man is a wonderful charity, close to many of our hearts.
‘It is great to see that recycling used Christmas trees can have such a positive impact upon the lives of the people on the island and benefit the environment.’
Hospice thanked David Quayle of Athol Garage for the support of a van to collect the trees.
